Connection is Key
It’s important that you feel a connection with your florist. He or she should be a great listener and also able to make you feel confident that your vision will be executed beautifully. If you don’t have a clear vision for the design; that’s OK too. A good florist will be able to ask the right questions to get a good idea of what you like. To help this process along though, try to bring pictures of things you love. Putting together a vision board including your favorite colors, decor ideas and fashion is a great way to instantly let your florist get a feel for your style.
Floral for Less
If you love roses, but they’re not in your budget, ask your florist to replace them with lisianthus. Daisies can be inexpensive, and designed well, can look fresh and beautiful. Also, be sure to choose flowers that are in season. This will help keep your budget on track.
Which came first? The flower or the design?
Choose your color scheme before you decide on flowers. Your florist is a designer who can come up with the perfect flowers for your style and color scheme. A couple of hints for choosing the perfect color scheme:
1. Pick 3-4 colors maximum.
2. Try not to choose 4 bright colors that will fight with each other. For a more harmonious combination, choose 3 muted and one bright pop of color.
3. For the best in color trends, check out kuler.
Filled with Foliage
A great florist is always thinking about new and interesting ways to incorporate greenery into floral designs. Foliage can add texture and uniqueness and is also a great way to save money, since greenery is less expensive than most blooms. If green is one of your favorite colors, incorporate it into your wedding color scheme. Green is such a fresh and calming color. Emerald is very elegant and in style right now and can easily be incorporated into almost any design.
Ace the Vase
One way to make your arrangements more unique is to use an interesting vase. You can personalize your florals by using family heirlooms too. Don’t be afraid to mix and match! Here are some ideas to get you thinking:

‘Adva’ is one of the most romantic design from our new collection, made from satin and tissue organza, cross pleated corset top, curve lines starts gently under waist follows by the ocean rips spread all over the skirt. To be more convenient for dressing, a side zip had been designed, the corset is still adjustable but no longer needed too much time and steps to wear it.
